MOOMIN in the Patriot-News
Other recent treasuries
"Moomin: The Complete Tove Jansson Comic Strip, Vol. 1," Drawn and Quarterly, 96 pages, $19.95.
Though beloved around the globe, Jansson's "Moomin" books aren't well known in the U.S. Hopefully, this book, collecting the initial run of the comic strip spin-off, will fix that.
Like "Peanuts," Jansson's strip combines melancholy and whimsy to delightful effect. It's a wonderful, delicate little strip that parents should share with their children whenever possible.
